The hospitality sector in Mauritius is on an upswing with the successful foray of Mauritius-based Beachcomber Hotels into North Africa.
The pioneer in the Indian Ocean hospitality space unveiled its first property in North Africa, the Royal Palm Marrakech in Morocco, at a soft launch yesterday.
Beachcomber Hotels own and manage eight luxury hotels in Mauritius and one in Seychelles – the Sainte Anne Resort & Spa.
As tourism in Mauritius attains higher and higher thresholds of excellence, it is time for world-class hotel chains based out of the island economy to venture out of the Indian Ocean hospitality space.
With Africa poised to witness some of the highest growth rates in GDP across the world and empower its residents with higher and higher disposable incomes in the coming years, the continent is indeed ripe for a more vibrant hospitality experience.
The emerging continent provides a golden opportunity for world-renowned hospitality majors in Mauritius to replicate their success in the Indian Ocean space on a wider, larger platform.
Betting big on the Africa success story and building on the success of their flagship hotel Royal Palm Mauritius and, Beachcomber Hotels unveiled the Royal Palm Marrakech in time for the festive season.
With 135 luxury suites and villas combining tradition with modernity, this new luxury hotel in Morocco lies in the heart of a vast olive grove in the Haouz Plain, facing the Atlas Mountains and only minutes away from the mythical red city.
Further, taking the hospitality experience in Morocco to the next level, Beachcomber Hotels is applying its learning from golf-tourism major Mauritius to their five star property in Morocco.
The Royal Palm will be the only hotel in the country to boast a course within its precincts, with a superb 18-hole, par 72 golf course accommodating all levels of play.
All in all, the world renowned welcome, service and quality associated with Royal Palm Mauritius has finally arrived in Marrakech, Morocco.
